by State Sen. Brad Lager

Capitol Perspectives: Ferguson, Police and Reporters

by Phill Brooks

Cops lobbing tear gas at reporters. Journalists handcuffed and arrested while trying to do their jobs. Reporters threatened while covering a story of international significance. A TV news crew having its camera shut down by police.

Those scenes from Ferguson portrayed an animosity to journalists by police that does not reflect my reporting experience in more than four decades working with law enforcement officials. Just the opposite.

The Summer of Our Discontent

by Lee H. Hamilton

Despite these last few months of hot and lazy days, it’s been hard not to notice a cold political wind blowing through the country. The magazine Foreign Affairs captured it with its latest cover, a mockup of a travel poster featuring a crumbling U.S. Capitol with the tagline, “See America: Land of Decay and Dysfunction.”

Americans are clearly uneasy. I know it anecdotally, because at virtually

Capital Report: Overriding Support for MO Agriculture

by State Sen. Brad Lager

Missouri farmers feed and fuel the world and they also employ hundreds of thousands of Missouri citizens in the process. As a result, the agriculture industry remains the largest economic engine in Missouri. Therefore, it only makes sense that the future economic health of our state greatly depends on a strong and vibrant agriculture industry.

Capitol Report: Complaints on Common Core

by Congressman Sam Graves

Why Government Openness Matters

by Lee H. Hamilton

One of the fundamental lessons of the 9/11 tragedy was that our government carried a share of blame for the failure to stop the attacks. Not because it was asleep at the switch or ignorant of the dangers that Al Qaeda posed, but because the agencies charged with our safety did not share what they knew, either up and down the chain of command or with
